As you may know, the lovebirds officially confirmed their relationship early last year. They later got engaged in October of the same year after the music star’s beautiful proposal in California.
Before the engagement, Barker exhibited the utmost respect to his lover’s parents as he made them aware of his intention to wed their daughter.
Travis Barker Asks Permission From Kourtney Kardashian’s Parents For Marriage Proposal
In the latest episode of “The Kardashians,” the Blink-182 drummer called his future mother-in-law, letting her know his plans to propose to Kourtney, which Jenner recalled to her other daughter Kim Kardashian.
As the Kardashian matriarch discussed the past phone call with Kim ahead of their “Saturday Night Live” premiere, she revealed that Barker had asked for Robert Kardashian Sr.’s go-ahead for the betrothal. Kris recounted to her 41-year-old daughter:
“He asked for her hand in marriage, and I was like, literally, I want to cry now. It was so sweet and so tender.”
She tearfully continued, “And then he said he went to your dad’s grave and asked your dad [for permission], and I just lost it.”
The 66-year-old expressed her happiness about the gesture but wished her deceased husband was present to witness the first time Kourtney would be getting married.
While Kris could not believe her first daughter would get hitched for the first time, Kim said, “That’s really crazy that she hasn’t been married before,” and joked, “While I’ve had enough for all of us!”
It should be noted that Robert Sr. died on September 30, 2003, at age 59. He was diagnosed with esophageal cancer before his death and passed away eight weeks later.
His marriage to Kris brought forth four children; three daughters, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé Kardashian, and a son Rob Kardashian.
Later in the same episode, the sisters of the “Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami” star conversed on how their older sibling’s ex, Scott Disick, would respond to her upcoming engagement.
As you may know, Disick and the reality icon share three kids, 12-year-old Mason, 9-year-old Penelope, and 7-year-old Reign.
Khloé told Ellen DeGeneres before an appearance on her talk show, “[Disick’s] gonna have a hard time, but…they can’t put their life on hold just to tiptoe around him.”
DeGeneres agreed with the 37-year-old, saying she thought it would be hard on Disick because the mother of his kids was not interested in marrying him.
Kourtney’s half-sisters Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner also voiced their thoughts regarding the “Flip It Like Disick” star’s reaction to the engagement. They were headed to Santa Barbara for the surprise proposal at the time.
Kylie wondered if the 38-year-old was aware of the situation, but she wanted Kourtney to “continue to live her life and be happy.”
On the other hand, Kendall was worried about how stable Disick was as she had not spoken to him that much in a while.
On the day of the surprise proposal, Barker was concerned about Kourtney not showing up as she had her IVF egg retrieval on the same day.
As Kris recalled to Khloé, he was “beside himself” as he had the whole thing planned out. But fortunately for them, the egg retrieval was rescheduled, so the initial plans for the proposal went on.
